He's my nephew,so I can tell you a little about him.
Born in SAfrica.
Emigrated to the States when he was 10.
Scholarship to Nick Bolleterri when he was 14.
Ranked No 1 in the USA in the U18s.
Won the Easter Bowl and turned Pro.
Got his Ranking to 175 and then had shoulder surgery.
Didn't play for two years after surgery.
Came back and did really well in Doubles,got his Doubles ranking to 75.
The ATP changed the Doubles Rules,so he started singles again.
In the last year he's got his singles ranking down from the mid 400s to 117.
He's spent a lot of time this year with his best friend Tommy Haas and "Red" who's their coach,I think Tommy has helped Glenn to gain some confidence and "Red" has taught Glenn to enjoy playing Tennis.
That's about it.....hope that helped.
